Kayaking the Nam Ou RiverApril 20, 2017 in Laos ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C
What better way to see the countryside then from the water!?! Oh yeah we have kayaked half a dozen times we tell the tour operator...does canoeing count? Lol We hit class 2 and 3. What white water rafting trip isn't an adventure without going for a dip once....or twice? The first was pretty crazy as we hit a rock going down a class 3 rapid which tipped us...Jardin went for a ride head first smacking a couple rocks and escaped with only minor scrapes and bruises..."All part of it Russ"!
We met this playful shysters while stopping for lunch and visiting a village along the river. We had a blast swimming with them and watching them do backflips into the water. They gave us a cold farewell as they hoped on our kayak as we pushed off and intentionally tipped us over!? 🙄 All in fun! Haha
Many of the villages along the river are in the process of being moved to higher ground as a new Chinese dam is being built and will be flooding their villages...☹️
